I will give a different perspective on this film because just peruse any of the reviews on here and you will see just how affective bourgeois, anti-communist propaganda has been on the masses for the last 50 years, though this film stumbles at the end and reinforces the lies. However, a film like this surfaces a really important contradiction surrounding the standard narrative on Stalin and the USSR which has been propped up by the status quo, (right wing) reactionaries…
A fairly well edited documentary that does not tell me anything I do not know. This is not to be a dismissive of the work, just falls in line with previous anti-industrial farming exposés I have seen like Earthlings, the Cove and Leviathan.
An issue I see in these movies is that their theoretical framing of the issue of meat consumption stems not from the system that prioritizes accumulation of commodities and wealth (capitalism). They do mention some aspects of…
Laughing at this idiotic film an hour in showing us an "Electoral Democracy" map and it only showing western allied countries, then having the rest of the map pop up red and calling the red countries "autocracies" I cannot understate how hard I laughed at this. Docs like this are some of the reasons why American politics is a joke to most of the world. I mean, yeah Trump is terrible and is very fascist like. But so are all…
I literally had to pause 30 minutes in because I was cringing so much from all the melodrama, thriller/hour background score, and spectacle over this stupid flash mob.

To be…

Sacramento is like the midwest of California...
I've lived in Sacramento my whole life (still do), and I have been watching movies for as long as I can remember. So for a film to come out with heart and integrity that finally gives my hometown some clout is eye-watering. Films where half of the story's plot is about its setting or location are a treat to watch, such as Manhattan, la dolce vita, City of God, etc., but I now…
